Former OL Anthony Fabiano hired as scouting assistant, as several additions, promotions announced

Anthony Fabiano has left the locker room for the personnel department.

The former offensive lineman was hired as a scouting assistant, the Browns announced Friday in a series of additions and promotions. Fabiano, a Harvard graduate, played four games with one start for the Browns in 2016 and was on the roster to finish last season.

The other additions: Udit Ranasaria as football research analyst, Joy Tapajcik as football operations assistant/special projects, Josh Temple as scouting assistant, Darryl MaGee as equipment assistant, Carson Walch as player development coordinator and Taylor Young as director of football administration.

There were five promotions: Nick Byford to video assistant, Kory Gillissie to assistant equipment manager, Katy Meassick to director of performance nutrition, Bryant Swindle to director of team logistics and Kathleen Wood to area scout.


“We are very pleased to make these additions to our organization and announce some well-deserved promotions,” general manager Andrew Berry said in the news release. “We approach building our staff in a way that encourages development, diverse opinions and an openness to varying experiences. All of this feeds into a collaborative environment that we believe is crucial for optimal decision-making and sustained success.” 

Ranasaria was a software engineer at Microsoft. He won honorable mention at the 2021 Big Data Bowl for his group’s paper on passing value. Ranasaria developed pass-completion model simulations using physics projections.

Tapajcik spent much of the past decade in Naval Intelligence.

Wood joined the Browns last year as the team’s first Scouting Fellow, where she served as a cross checker for the Southeast and Midwest regions. She’ll be the primary evaluator of draft-eligible players from the Northeast.
